We are waiting for fencing, and why not BMX or swimming. Update on the French engaged in the final this Sunday at the Tokyo Olympic Games.

This Sunday, August 1, at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, to find the best French chance for a medal, we will have to turn to fencing.

After the disappointment of the men’s epee team, eliminated in the quarter-finals on Friday, their foil comrades have the ambition to climb on the podium. If the United States are favorites, the Blues have ample means to inflate the collection of French medals.

A total already well supplied by fencers since the start of the Olympics, with Romain Cannone’s gold on épée, girls’ silver in team foil, and Manon Brunet’s bronze on saber.

To follow the men’s foil competition, you will have to tune in to France Télévisions from 2am (French time), and while they cross swords, fingers crossed for a possible final, scheduled for 11:30 am.

For the rest, it will be necessary to follow from 3:10 am the very first Olympic BMX freestyle event, in which the Frenchman Anthony Jeanjean, reigning European champion, will have a card to play.

Perhaps we will simultaneously experience the first French medal in swimming? In what was previously a flagship discipline of French Olympic sport, the Blues are struggling to renew themselves.

In the final of the 50m freestyle (at 3.30am), Florent Manaudou will be there as he won the semi-final in 21 ”53.

Finally, in sailing, Jean-Baptiste Bernaz, 9th in the Men’s Laser, will compete in the “medal race” with little hope of a podium. End expected around 5:30 am.

Hoping that the French delegation will win gold again as it does today, with the coronation of the French judo team.
